Halloween ideas to make your party go with a bang!
Are you starting to plan for the next big occasion on the calendar? Or did you miss out on Halloween last year due to lockdown and want to throw an impromptu kids party? We have some great ideas on how to make this years Halloween party go with a bang!
There are endless ways to decorate your home for Halloween. You can use black and orange, or you can go with a more colourful theme. Decorate your front garden with carved pumpkins, and turn that into a competition. Who can make the spookiest pumpkin?
You can also do something simple like put some witches cauldrons on your front step so passing revellers can help themselves to homemade treats. We all know Halloween is about sweets and goodies, but you could make some relatively healthy but still yummy party food.
- Make fruit kebabs – peeled grapes can make great fingers!
- You can make a warming pumpkin soup out of the pumpkins you have carved to put on your doorstep.
- Stuffed peppers – yummy chilli or Bolognese mix inside carved peppers makes a great winter warmer
- Carve some large oranges to match your pumpkins and fill with jelly
- Banana mummies – insert a lolly stick into a peeled banana and make mummy stripes with white chocolate
This Halloween, get your craft on! This section includes some fun and easy-to-make ideas to get you started:
- Make your own paper pumpkins

- Hang strips of orange and black tissue paper all over the house
- Print out lots of spooky signs – welcome to our spooky abode, spooky treats here, this is the way to the creepy cauldron. The key here is to make the design as spooky as can be, and you must use Halloween fonts, the spookier the better
- Make the kitchen a creepy zone, filled with spooky prints – remember those fonts – and creepy food (try a bowl of dyed spaghetti with fake eyeballs in!)
- Wrap a dressmakers dummy in toilet roll to make a spooky mummy
- To decorate the table, try making a spooky paper plate or cup lantern. You can use paper plates or cups to make the shapes of witches’ hats, ghosts, pumpkins, tombstones and more. You can also include the name of the guest on the lantern.
